The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World were a collection of remarkable constructions listed by various Greek authors, including Antipater of Sidon and Philo of Byzantium. The classic list featured seven wonders located in the Eastern Mediterranean:

Statue of Zeus at Olympia

The Great Pyramid at Giza

Colossus of Rhodes

Maussoleum at Halicasnassus

Lighthouse at Alexandria

Hanging Gardens at Babylon

Temple of Artemis at Ephesus

All of them have modern alternatives such as the world’s tallest pyramid-shaped structure, the colossal Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang, North Korea – dubbed the «Hotel of Doom» , or the Dubai Miracle Garden.

The world is full of magnificent examples of man’s accomplishments and modern wonders.  Choose one that leaves you in complete awe.

Why do you especially marvel at it? Where is it? Who promoted or designed it?
